In Memory of Duke..




I am sitting here with tears rolling down my cheeks, our dear friend Duke has gone over the rainbow bridge...  Ann, you know I loved Duke... this is a repost in his memory. to visit Ann click on SnapEditScrap...

Click on photos for the best view in slide show..

Ann of SnapEditScrap and I, have found we are sisters under the skin when it comes to play time in Photoshop. We both love to add and subtract and filter and do STUFF to photos. I have grabbed a few ideas from things she posted. She suggested we have a Duel. I grabbed her dog Duke from her blog and she grabbed my dogs from my blog and here we are today. Dueling Darlings using our Darlings.


Baby and Duke are laying in the Gulf Fritteary Butterfly Incubator.
(a bit of a TRICK since they live 1028 miles apart, but with a little help, they managed to meet and play)


Jake and Duke with their favorite toys. Don't they look like they love walking on our pool deck together?


Of Course Dogs talk!

 I had so much fun I thought Black and White, why not. Can't wait to see what Ann thought up. Why don't you POP OVER to see what tricks Ann pulled out of her hat  Photoshop


Don't forget to pop over and see what Ann came up with.... or maybe you have already been there.



THE END run free Sweet Duke

I do love this Sandra and I know that Duke, in between shaking the stuffing out of toys, is looking down and wagging his tail over this one too.

Rose said...

Even though I don't know Ann, nor did I know Duke...I sure hate to hear of anyone losing their beloved fur babies.

And yes, dogs do talk. You just have to listen to understand them.

Big hug to you Sandra. It is just wonderful what you did with the photos. How very thoughtful.

Ida said...

Oh I'm sorry to hear that your friend lost her sweet Duke. It's always hard to lose furry friends. I cry even though I don't know the animal. In fact I learned that one of the Bulls I watch on the PBR passed away this week and I cried about that too.
Your tribute to Duke was really wonderful. He's at peace now.

Just Me Pooh said...
